I am most proud of the global team that we've built, an incredible group of dedicated individuals that span 7 countries and wake up everyday to help change the world, one campaign at time.

The entrepreneurs on Inc.'s third annual Female Founders 100 list have transformed every major industry in America

The final list honors entrepreneurs of every age, background, and geography - from very early-stage founders with world-changing ideas to women who have taken companies public, sold them to big buyers, or spent decades building and running their businesses. These women are leading innovative companies in a vast range of global industries, including tech, retail, finance, fitness, health care, consumer products, food, and more.

According to Co-founder and COO of, Amany Killawi, her win is a team win:

“I am so incredibly humbled by this honor! When my co-founders Chris Blauvelt, Omar Hamid and I started (LG), we never imagined it would flourish into the inspiring and change-making platform that it is today! I cannot express my gratitude enough to the Inc. team, my co-founders, the LG family, our community of campaign creators, our nearly 1 million donors and, of course, my family and especially my parents. Above all, I thank God for giving me the tools to serve humanity from where it all started, in Michigan.

I am most proud of the global team that we've built, an incredible group of dedicated individuals that span 7 countries and wake up everyday to help change the world, one campaign at time. Together, our next milestone is to reach the 1-billion-dollar fundraising mark as we have seen how every dollar donated truly changes someone’s life for the better.

The campaigns we've led have been incredibly transformative and have impacted thousands of people around the world. From raising funds for Muslim mental health programs, refugees and uninsured Americans, to supporting Black churches burned in the south and helping repair anti-Semitic vandalism of Jewish cemeteries, is a reflection of our beautiful diversity and the power and potential of our community to collectively do good for humanity.”

Inc. editors and writers spent the past year researching candidates for the list, considering a wealth of exciting and accomplished candidates. Each of the founders selected has left her mark on her industry in the past year, by setting audacious goals or by achieving business milestones. Taken together, they represent the female-led future of business.

“Our team vetted thousands of applications to find the 100 women highlighted on this list. It’s the most inspiring work we do all year, and we’re so thrilled to be able to feature these fierce, accomplished entrepreneurs and start to give them the recognition they deserve,” said Inc. editor-at-large Kimberly Weisul.
